A BALANCED LIFE
Too often we eat as if though this was to be our last meal, we overfill our plates we stuff our bellies and then we feel lethargic, sick, and tired afterward, our choices must be mindful, we must take what we need, and always remember that what we put in ourselves, is the reflection of who we are, and what we choose to be. Whenever possible choose foods that are prepared with love, never put food in you that was prepared, with pain, fear, anger, and greed.
We need to spend time with our shoes off, and our feet in the grass. Nature moves with the harmony of all Creation. Too often we humans move too fast to feel and connect with anything. Spend time in nature just listening and watching and slow down. Nature can be the greatest teacher you will ever know.
When working whether for others or yourself, always be in service. It is the giving of ourselves to others that brings our greatest rewards. Whenever possible try to find work that brings your heart joy, if that is not the case then always bring joy to your work.
We need 30 minutes a day, three to four times a week of cardiovascular exercise; the other days do some form of yoga, meditation, play, martial arts, or just simply walk.
Be In Service To Someone
It is by giving of our time and selves, to friends, family, work associates, and even strangers that we find our greatest moments of connection, purpose, and peace.
Pray often, not just when others are watching, and judgments are upon you, but pray in silence, in the peaceful moments of your aloneness. It is said that every thought, action, and
breath is a prayer, so
breathe with the creating.
If you’re not breathing you're dead, so take a breath, and whenever conflicts arise then take a moment and breath, for in a single breath you may find a moment of peace, clarity, and make a better choice for yourself and the other.
Drink lots of clean, pure water! Your body is made of approximately 70% to 85% water, in fact, your muscles are made of 70% water, your blood is made of 80% water, and your brain is 85% water. We have proven time and time again, that a person can go days, even weeks without food, but your body must have water. So give your body not what you want (Soda's or Juice), but what it needs “Water”.
To all possibilities say yes! By engaging in life, we learn and grow, and through the experiences, we have with other human beings, those moments become our greatest teacher.
Whenever possible get 6 to 8+ hours of sleep every day, if you are unable to get six to eight hours or more, supplement the time lost, with a nap or meditation.
